Carrie Prejean, Miss Calafornia, lost her chance to gain her most sought after prize to remain biblicaly correct. She was topped to win a national contests and only five questions stood in the way of her receiving the title Miss America. Unfortuntaly for her, one of the questions given by Judge Perez Hilton, an open gay, was her thoughts on gay marriage. She decided to follow her conscience and declare her Christian beliefs in one man to one women union. “In my country, and in my family, I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman,” Miss California said at Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas. It is believed by many that her frank answer probally cost her the crown. She finished the contest as first runner up. Same sex marriage is high on the agenda at the moment in the USA as individual states are voting on whether to legalise civil partnerships. Her comments on National TV have certainly stirred up a hornets nest. Miss Prejean, now labeled as a 'gay hater' is unmoved. She believes she did the right thing by following her own conscience. Many agree the controversial question was loaded and that her religious persuasion was known by the judge. Whatever your feelings on beauty pageants you have to admire the young lady for her gutsy faith. It is my opinion that political correctness for Christians is nothing other than compromise. We must always be Bilicaly correct, no matter what it costs us.

Contrary to popular belief, the Jews didn’t crucify Jesus, nor did the Romans. They
may have played a role in the physical crucifixion of Jesus, but the fact is YOUR sins were the reason Jesus willingly suffered and died on the Cross. What is sin? Sin is the breaking of Gods holy law, the ten commandments. Do you think you have kept the ten commandments? Have you ever lied? Stolen anything? Used Gods name as a cuss word? Looked with lust? Hated anyone? If you have said yes to the above then by your own admission you are a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterous, murderer at heart and we’ve only looked at five of the ten commandments! On the day of judgment, when you stand before your creator, do you think you will be found innocent or guilty of breaking his commandments? If you are honest you would say guilty and admit your sins make you deserving of hell. But here’s the good news. This is not Gods will for you. “For God so loved the world, he sent his only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16. This is the reason Jesus died, to pay your fine with his own blood so you wouldn’t have to go to hell. He then rose from the dead three days later proving he was God. Now if you repent (turn from your sin) and trust in Jesus as your only means of salvation, you will be saved from hell and receive the free gift of everlasting life. Jesus also promises never to leave you or forsake you. Shouldn’t you make peace with God right now? Pray something like this: “Lord Jesus I admit I’m a sinner. Thank you for taking the punishment for my sins. Please forgive me. I Surrender my life to you right now and receive you as my Lord and Saviour.” Amen

Reach your community for Jesus this Easter
This Easter, people need hope. This Easter, people need to know where true security lies. This Easter, people need to know they are loved and valued.
I received this unoffensive, people pleasing and policitical correct lingo in my e-mail. It’s part of a Christian publicists Easter drive. It pretty much sums up were allot of the professing church is at the moment.
I have an alternative...
This Easter, people need to be saved. This Easter, people need to know they have broken Gods law, sinned against God and his wrath abides on them. This Easter people need to know without repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ they are doomed to destruction in a place called hell.
This is the message I shall be preaching this Easter and every Easter whilst God gives me breath. But that's not loving you say! But is it loving to hide from someone the truth of their prediciment before a just and righteous God and to withold the only means by which they might be saved? The Writer of Proverbs 14:25agrees, “A true witness delivers souls.” This Easter lets work with Jesus, not aginst him, and get into the business of saving souls!
